Feminist Film Classics

The Handmaid’s Tale, a novel by Margaret ATWOOD ends with the following lines: “When we turn to look at her, we glimpse her only for a moment, before she slips from our grasp and flees. As all historians know, the past is a great darkness, and filled with echoes. Voices may reach us from it; but what they say to us is imbued with the obscurity of the matrix out of which they come; and, try as we may, we cannot always decipher them precisely in the clearer light of our own day.” ATWOOD’s view of history resembles her wondrous and devastating novel The Handmaid’s Tale, the best dystopian novel of all time set in the imaginary Republic of Gilead. How can we bring the women from the past to our time who slip from our grasp whenever we try to look at them? The answer lies within the process of calling out those forgotten by our history through fiction and storytelling and of recognizing “women and their individuality” instead of their collective fate – just as the title of the film Something Different by CHYTILOVÁ suggests. In line with this, some of the feminist classic films including Born in Flames, The Cat Has Nine Lives, Thriller, and The Gold Diggers await us in the present after passing through the great darkness and the undecipherable voices of the past. These films have been the most radical ones among many others that know how to create a cinematic time and play with it. As a gesture of reaching out to the women from the past, from these feminist classic films, we stay in theater, a world of fiction so as to look at these women as long as possible and precisely decipher what they say.
